The IL Y A double-sided video, 12-channel sound installation, mixes live video from its two sides so you see through its opaque wall as if it were a glass window. IL Y A transforms what you see of the other side: your gesture transmutes the other, conjures the other’s body. Your movement distends what you see of the other side like smoke or other pseudo-physical material. The effect is symmetrical – any movement by the other reshapes your image as well. Over time, the behavior of the installation changes through a field of behaviors staged by the composer, according also to the activities of its visitors.
